If it's not one of the best zombie movies i've ever seen then i don't know what it is. Dumb fun at its best. Clever fun at its best. Even funnier than Shaun of The Dead. The latest Train To Busan will never touch this. Pure fun movie experience. My Indonesian review : http://cinemaudy.blogspot.co.id/2017/01/dawn-of-dead-2004-film-zombie-yang.html
Not a fan of the zombie flick, but this is a good example of getting the job done. The Director's Cut doesn't shy away from totally irredeemable nihilism, which is what I want in a zombie apocalypse. No answers, no commentary, just wanton carnage.
Un remake fondamentalmente inutile, che si trova ad essere sconfitto sotto ogni aspetto, se paragonato al capolavoro originale. La critica politica del film di Romero, qua è assente e questo fa perdere molta forza alla pellicola. Alcune sequenze non sono male e anche gli effetti splatter sono ben fatti, anche se nel complesso la pellicola prende le idee migliori dall'originale, senza aggiungere nulla degna di nota.
A surprisingly good remake / reimagining of the "Dawn of the Dead" movie. It starts with a powerful beginning where the feisty heroine loses her whole family to the zombie plague before it follows the concept of George A. Romero's original closely but it do feel more sometimes like a sequel to "28 Days Later" as we suddenly have zombies that can run fast after it's victims. Tense and memorable though.
Forgettable but has its moments and Snyder demonstrates an accomplished ability to keep things moving and maintain the tension throughout. But unlike the original there is no attempt at any kind of subtext, leaving me wondering what point there was to making the film in the first place.
It's as vexatious as the original - even though it doesn't feel like a remake, apart from the location. However, this one is consistently agiler in the entertaining department. It blows off by giving super strenght and speed to its undead corpses.
